Somehow, I'm addicted to this series

This is definitely my favorite book of the series. I've listened to the first 4 and I kinda got addicted to them even when there were a few things that annoyed me about them. To be fair, the things that annoy me are the typical things that teenagers do (like think they know better than everyone else, not be able to listen and reason things out logically, ect) so I desperately try not to let that completely impact my rating. Instead, I consider the fact that I managed to listen to this book and the next one in under 24 hours and would find reasons to keep doing things that allowed me to listen to them. I really enjoyed the emotional bond Hope and Crystal create during this book and I love how Crystal kept following her instincts, even when she questioned herself and was questioned by others. There is a proper amount of character growth so unfortunately she's going to be doing teenager-like things for the foreseeable future. *LOL*

Good Story

While I still mostly enjoyed the plot of the book it frustrated me to no end that the MC, Crystal, had started to gain some confidence in her budding psychic abilities only to have it seemed solely based on Teddy's belief in her. And it bothered me that she kept putting herself in situations that were needlessly dangerous without telling anyone of her plans.
Overall, I thought the narrator was really good at putting emotion into the characters and giving them depth and life. And the plot, aside from naivete of the mc, was still different enough to hold my attention. I'd continue the series.

A good continuation

There were a few points where Crystal irritated me and the way people reacted to her and what she had to say but for the most part I enjoyed this story a lot. I loved how the romance developed and how this story continued. Crystal is continuing to gain more faith in her skills and abilities. She is still learning but she is starting to understand more. I liked Crystal and her mom and really loved Robin. Emma made me laugh a lot. I was very happy for her.

Another amazing story

If you could sum up Desire in Frost in three words, what would they be?

Another amazing story by Alicia Rades

Everyone knows that Emma is the real MVP there

Have you listened to any of Kim Reiko’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have only heard Crystal Frost books from her and I think they're amazing

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes but I couldn't do it

Entertaining ya psychic mystery

This is the second book in the series. This never happens to me, but I actually liked this one better. Maybe it was because I was already introduced to Crystal in the first book , and was so excited to see where her gift would take her. This book starts with the mystery that was introduced at the end of the last book. It jumps right in and doesn't stop.

The book was paced well. I listened to it within a day and a half. The narrator fit the book perfectly. The new characters introduced were developed well. This is turning out to be a very entertaining series. I can't wait to listen to the next installment.

Lovely story

I really enjoyed this audible book. The narrator is very good. I will say I found it wasn't quite as good as the first book in the series. It seemed to take a while to build up and get going. But it was still a lovely listen and I did enjoy it and very heart stopping at the end. Crystal is getting dreams about a young girl called Hope who has been kidnapped. But he dreams seem to be muddled and she not getting the answers she need to help save the little girl. But with the help of done ghosts she may just be able to find her.
I received a free copy of this audible book from the author but the review is my own opinion.

Brilliant.

I was given a free copy of this book and I'm leaving an honest and voluntary review.

Im completely enjoying this serise, this 2nd book is just as exciting as the 1st book, the main characters are great as expected, the introduction of the new characters fit the story perfectly. Again the supernatural aspect is very well written and deffinatly draws you in.
The narration is perfectly preformed, once again bringing the characters and story to life.
5 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ all the way.

Disire in frost

This is the second book in the series although it is not essential to read/listen to the first book as it could be a stand allow it does follow from the first book. Where the first book focus on Crystal discovering her abilities and helping in a abusive relationship, this book is her trying to help an abducted young girl. The narration is good like the other book and I was easy listening to and follow the story. Will be listening to the next one.

Aimed at younger audience

Having discovered she has the ability to see into the future, witness the past and talk to the dead, Crystal struggles to adapt to her newly realised gifts with the help of her mother and best friend, Emma. Tormented by her visions of a young girl who was mysteriously abducted from her bed one night, Crystal agonises over her inability to pinpoint the identity of her abductor or her location.

While travelling to Florida for Thanksgiving with Teddy’s parents, Crystal’s visions of Hope grow stronger. Aided by her soon to be step cousin Robin and a ghost by the name of Penny, Crystal tries to find Hope before it’s too late. With her confidence in her abilities taking a setback, will Crystal’s new found abilities fail her?

Desire in Frost is the 2nd instalment of the Crystal Frost series and while the premise sounded promising, I found myself struggling to maintain my interest. This is not due to the author’s writing, however, but simply because I feel that these books are more suitable for a younger audience, perhaps 11-14 year olds?

Less emphasis seemed to be on the girls abduction and more on Crystal’s developing feelings for Robin and her lack of faith in her abilities due to a few setbacks. Some of the appeal of the first book had been in the peer interaction which was unfortunately lacking in the sequel with Emma and Derek taking a backseat while Robin is introduced. The identity of the mystery kidnapper was easy to guess once Penny made an appearance. The ending was satisfactory however.

This was a quick read, ideal for young readers for fans of mystery, paranormal abilities, ghosts, psychics and romance who are willing a way a couple of hours in the afternoon.

I received a advanced free audible copy of Desire in Frost which was read by the excellent Kim Reiko and I am voluntarily reviewing it.
